2015 Yamaha FJ-09


THE MOST VERSATILE SPORT TOURER. Introducing the most performance, power, versatility and value ever packed into one motorcycle. From commuting and exploring back roads, to touring the open freeway and enjoying long sport tour adventures, the all-new FJ-09 does it all in comfort and style with Yamaha's unmistakable reliability and performance.

Additional Features

  • The main seat section can be adjusted to two height positions without using tools. The 2 positions are at 15 mm increments.
  • A center stand is standard on the FJ-09 for added rider convenience when parking or doing maintenance.
  • A 12V electric outlet (on the side of the instrument panel) is standard as an additional convenience.

Chassis / Suspension Features

  • For excellent damping characteristics, the front suspension is an inverted fork with 41 mm inner tubes with 5.4 inches of travel. The front suspension features adjustment for spring preload and rebound damping.
  • The rear suspension features a linked-type Monocross® shock. The shock is positioned below the seat and features an almost horizontal alignment. This unique positioning contributes to mass centralization and a slimmer body design. The rear suspension is also adjustable for spring preload and rebound damping.
  • Front brakes consist of two floating 298 mm discs with 4-pot opposed piston calipers. The calipers are radial mounted.
  • Large 4.8 gallon fuel tank with 44 miles per gallon* means less-frequent stops for fuel when on the open road.
  • Lightweight Controlled-Fill die cast aluminum swingarm is used to reduce weight.
  • The windscreen of the front cowl can be height-adjusted to three positions at 15 mm increments without the use of tools.
  • The aluminum tapered handlebars are adjustable up to 10 mm to accommodate different rider physiques and preferences.
  • Multi-function instrument panel features speedometer, tachometer, fuel, clock, gear indicator, eco indicator, D-MODE and TCS indicators.

Engine Features

  • 847 cc liquid-cooled, in-line 3-cylinder, DOHC, 12-valve engine with fuel injection. This engine combines advanced high tech components including YCC-T and Yamaha D-Mode, with a crossplane crankshaft concept to deliver an exciting, torquey and quick-revving engine character.
  • This 3-cylinder engine features Yamaha’s “Crossplane Crankshaft Concept” that provides linear torque development in response to the rider’s throttle input.
  • The ride-by-wire Yamaha Chip Controlled Throttle (YCC-T) system senses the slightest throttle input by the rider, relays the data to the ECU which sends commands to a servo-motor actuator controlling the intake airflow volume.
  • The FJ-09 is equipped with Yamaha D-MODE (or “Drive Mode”) variable throttle control system. The rider can choose at will from three throttle valve control maps (Standard Mode, “A” Mode, and “B” Mode) for different performance characteristics.
  • Traction Control System (TCS) helps ensure smooth starts even on wet road surfaces or unpaved roads. The system detects rear wheel spin and reacts though combined control of the ignition timing, fuel injection volume and throttle opening (YCC-T).
